If you enjoy Coronation Street, and the X-Files, then this book will appeal to you – along with a whole host of other reasons. Initially, we are entertained by 80s and 90s pop culture and Boy George name drops, we are amused by quips about walking around Ikea all day. Then, the protagonist, Jamie, lands himself in a situation synonymous with 1990s urban myth news. I do NOT want to spoil this part of the storyline; but wow! The characters in this book, I actually felt a little bit in love with, or at the very least hope they would be my best friend. It is so well written, with a ‘no holds barred’ attitude (you must read to discover what I mean). Seemingly, glass topped tables and cream coloured chaise longues are popular amongst quirky characters such as these (One example of the fabulous scene setting).
Three word review; Enjoyable exciting adventure.
